We are living in unprecedented times. It’s hard to know how to feel, and there is little we can say or do to make a profound impact on the current climate.
As a physician, I understand the seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on our families, communities, economies, and social activities. Please be well and heed the recommendations of public health officials.
Many of us are already experiencing some level of quarantine and/or self-isolation. We should all be practicing social distancing. Use this as a time to slow down, unplug, and reconnect with your family and housemates. Avoid feeding the social media machine, filled with speculation, misinformation, and anxiety. Try, rather, to find the calm in the storm.
When I conceived of MONQ, it never occurred to me that we may encounter such a time. But, as I write this, I am reminded that MONQ was founded on the principles of wellness and self-care—principles that are particularly important during times of chaos. And, in its own little way, perhaps MONQ has the opportunity to make things a bit easier if only to help you slow down, breathe deeply, and feel peace in the midst of uncertainty.
We’re all in this together. The MONQ family sends you wellness and warm wishes.
